No Country For Old Men

It's certainly rare in cinema to see a film and instantly express such admiration and love after only one viewing. Some people would tell you that most of the great films tend to take a few viewings to really appreaciate, and to obviously tell if it holds up to repeat viewings. However, yesterday i saw No Country for old Men in an advance screening, the new film by the Coen Brothers and it blew that perception away. I know for a fact that it will possibly only improve on repeat viewings, that what i had seen was a true masterpeiece. The Coen Brothers managed to make a film closer to their debut, Blood Simple, but also carve a completely refreshing and skillful film that works on so many different levels. Anyone who watches it and thinks it's simply a film about violence is looking at it only superficialy. It's a poetic, intricatly layered film that demands to be seen again. If only for the one of the best endings i've seen in a film for years.
